Hitching a ride on a swan’s back.

Helen's Photomania Blog


I had a wonderful time out with my camera today and was watching some swans in the late afternoon sun when I spotted this insect at the edge of a swan’s wing so I quickly took  a photo of it…

and then…..




…. the swan turned to swim into the sun, lifted it’s wing and the insect moved underneath it…

You can see the result below; beautiful light through the wing and the insect in silhouette.

I managed 2 shots before the wing went down and the insect flew away. 

One thing I have learnt about photography is that you have to be always ready and on the lookout for a shot.







I seem to have quite a few swan photos that need editing and think I am developing a real love for these beautiful creatures.

You can see my other swan photoshere.
